More or less the same. Blindside hit to the head after the player released the puck. No elbow, and technically a legal hit. The player getting hit was bent down and was injured because he was in a vulnerable position, while the player delivering the hit could have avoided it but chose not to at the last second. These hits are right smack on the borderline between being an unfortunate accident or a dirty play with intent to injure.
I say let the rule book decide. Dont like these hits? Change the rule book.
